I know, at least, we tried.
I took you to the doctor
And I stayed there at your side;
I talked with you for one last time
Then held you as you died.
I kissed your head, and said good-bye
I'm still crying. Dogs are fur-covered unconditional love; it should hurt when you say good-bye.
I was going to post a picture, but I can't bring myself to do it.
Good-bye, old friend.
edit--regular readers may recall that I last wrote of her this past Thanksgiving.
